603 Things To Do in Eastern Cape

The second largest province in the country, the Eastern Cape has a diversity that extends across landscapes ranging from the desert of the Great Karoo to the pounding waves of the Wild Coast. The selection of adventure includes the world’s biggest waves, the only snow slopes on the continent, and the highest bungee-jump in the southern hemisphere. The highlights of the Eastern Cape are without doubt the Addo Elephant Park, the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, and the surfing capital of Jeffreys Bay. But don’t forget the hidden treasures of Cape St Francis, Kaaiman's River Bridge, the Owl House and the Apple Express.
